God prepares us for our blessings though the preparatory packages. There is always a painful preparation that comes before the blessing. God's blessing make rich and do not add sorrow. Question the blessing when it adds sorrow to your life.
God wants you to trust His character and believe that whatever He has put on your plate is good for you.
How do I know it is not my idea and it is God's?
- Sometimes God keeps you in a situation even though He has opened the doors for you.
- Paul and Silas chose not escape from the prison when the cell doors where opened. Instead they remained until they were publicly released. This made the Jailer not commit suicide out of fear that his prisoners had escaped. Their obedience resulted in the Jailer giving his life to Christ!
Jesus came from humble beginnings as a template sent from heaven to inspire us. He always showed that people matter more than any programme. Jesus left His position and authority in order to prove that people are important. People are more important than structure.
